My Last Proposal


Sri Lanka

My Last Proposal


One hour passed

By taking some more

Lives to the end,


One second passed

No message yet,

Thank God!

I am still breathing,


‘’Do you want to live anymore?’’

I asked myself,

I received its silence

The silence of ‘No’,


So, I am on my knee

To do my last proposal,

‘’Dear Covid,

Will you marry me?’’
